A Flat in front of the forest!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue du Vallon, Lausanne, Vaud 1005, Switzerland

The Space

Charming flat in the center of Lausanne next to the forest and the old town, with a view on the lake, in a popular but quiet neighborhood. 5 minutes walk to the city center.

The apartment has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a view on the forest and one big living room with a very big sofa (almost the size of a queen size bed) and a view on the lake. No other building is facing the apartment and although 5 minutes away from the center, it is very quiet and very green.

The living room is divided in three distinctive parts :
— one dining room area with a bench seat from a pub and an antique wooden table and chairs.
— one study/workshop area with a desk and office chair.
— one living room area with a very big sofa, a coffee table and a home cinema (provided you have a computer with VGA or Mini DisplayPort and optical out or mini-jack out).

There's an all equipped kitchen with oven and dishwasher (but no microwave!), a high table and two highchairs for breakfast.
The bathroom has toilets and a bathtub.

The whole apartment has been freshly painted. It's on the 4th floor without an elevator. Not recommended for disabled people, but worth the view.

You are located 3 minutes away from "La Cité" the old town of Lausanne and 2 minutes away from the beautiful park of l'Hermitage. One of the best vietnamese restaurant, "Dalat", is just around the corner, located in an old-fashioned swiss chalet. The contrast makes it a place worth seeing.
If you're lucky enough, some sheeps will be in the pasture just up in the woods. And you can wake up to the sound of their bleat ;)

  • Our stay in Lausanne was great! Eugene's apartment is large, centrally located, and full of all the amenities (workable kitchen, wi-fi). While we never met Eugene, he was very responsive and helpful over Air Bnb messaging and we worked with his brother on check in, etc. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Lausanne.

  • I thoroughly recommend both Eugene and his place. He has a lovely apartment with a beautiful view, and there are touches of his tasteful and educated lifestyle everywhere. He made us very welcome and even let us raid his fridge! I just wish we could have stayed longer.

  • We had the whole flat for ourself and our room was big because they did not stay in the placce. The place was quiet, simple and warm even during the stay with snow. The snow was unexpected for October. It is located on the 4th floor but is 5 levels up above street without an elevator. It was ok for because we did not have heavy luggages. Also not very far from Riponne metro station but going up hills if you have luggages. Taxi was expensive for 18.5 CHF from the train station. It is better off takeing metro.

    Response from Melano:

    Yes, unfortunately Taxis are very expensive in Lausanne. 18.50CHF for a five minutes ride. And the whole city is very hilly.
    Better take the metro and walk up the hill!
